That is a first for me to see a slide/tightening assembly. Interesting piece. Congrats. Thanks for showing it.

Thanks guys and I think this is one of I think 2 types of armbands made with a clasp if I'm not mistaken. You don't see the reichspost one often but more common than the green bevo type....

New one!! Funny thing is that I never paid over $100 for an armband with the exception of the postal one....

Hello,
Here's a pic of my kyffhauserbund armband. I believe the silver denotes an officer.

I don't think that one is leather. Looks like wool/felt that has been ironed.

I have never seen iron wool/felt before so I wouldn't know. Either way it isn't the normal....

Got these 2 and 1 other at a show today but the one I don't have pictured is ripped and everything so I will not show it. The green and the one I'm not showing were gifts from a man at the show.... Any idea on what the numbers are for on the green one?

That is an exceptional example of a H.J. armband. I wonder if it was a one of, or part of a small run of a cottage industry?

Unique, thanks for sharing it.

Not an expert on German order of battle, but I think the "408" on your green Luftshutz "L" armband may designate the 408th Division z.b.V (Landesschutzen) in the Wehrkreis of Breslau.

Never seen one that is green before. Do you have a photo? Sounds interesting. I haven't seen a photo of the RLB 2 in wear but I have many photos of the RLB 1 in leader and regular. I attached two with both in wear....

That reminds me of my newest one and probably last one for a while! A nice customs administration armband.... The shield is gold just that the glare of the snow is most likely making it silver looking. The shield is actually much larger than I expected! It is the size of a Krim shield.....

Alright Kyle,
Photo of the only one I have. An Imperial German Hunting Club armband. The metal insignia is gold guilted brass with polished highlights. Photos don't do it justice.
Cheers, Rick

Just an amazing armband even though that I don't collect imperial armbands! Much higher quality than the customs armband due to the fact that it is aluminum that is painted gold. The detail is perfect on yours. What material is the band made of?

no photos.. Saw it while visiting a friend out of town,,in an 'antique store'. I've seen the standard yellow ones a hundred times,this looked fine,,except had green band. Should have just gave him the $100.! crazy


No one has a photo of the RLB T2 in wear?

100 would of been great! The standard white ones something's even go over that and this one is an odd color but if there was green ones they would be mass produced which is odd as I haven't seen one. I'll ask someone else I know if they have seen one.

Here is what my friend had to say about the green state service.


Kyle,
I have never seen a green one in over 20 years of collecting. Not in person, not for sale, and in no period picture. They only came in yellow and white and are woven/BeVo. I have yet to see/handle a printed one that I thought was an original, period piece.



Sounds like to him it is rubbish but it would be very interesting if it was original. It could be late war if original and it seems anything went and regulation went out the window in the end.

Kyle,,
- this wasn't printed. It was embroidered exactly like the standard yellow band!
I'll see IF I can get my buddy to go over and get it or some photos.. IF it pans out I'll let you know.........

KB,,, don't remember the topic,,,but you had wanted to see an armband I have..

This is a pre war jacket from the Baltics.. The armband is a common printed B&W 'In the Service of' band. On it is a Ukrainian foreign volunteer shield. Folded up and sewn on to band. The band is attached to sleeve with sewn on snaps that go around the back half of band..
Is it good[?] , the jacket is authentic,,the band is authentic, the shield is too.
Just a cool [to me] old thing that survived the flood and I still have.

Very interesting attachment! The armband style like this did exist so no problems there. They are a but more uncommon then the ones with the I looking like a J. Thanks for showing it! Just a different way of attaching it due to probably what was around at the time where it was needed.

A nice pair of *getting difficult to find* armbands. Both multi piece/sewn. Simple and plain.
